Pelvic Organ Prolapse & Levator Ani Muscles

Pelvic floor ultrasound allows visualization of prolapse in real time.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Levator Ani muscle injury occurs in 3 of 10 vaginal deliveries, often resulting in pelvic organ prolapse and/or incontinence. 

Pelvic floor ultrasound allows visualization of the position and morphology of the pelvic floor organs and observation of the pelvic organ prolapse in real time. It also provides analysis and quantifying of the degree of the levator ani muscle injury.   


Levator Ani Muscles

The Catalyst Ultrasound System offers both Transvaginal and Transperineal/Translabial approaches for a complete examination of the levator ani muscles.
